Fixing a Kenwood KD 491F turntable

I just received a Kenwood KD 491F turntable- while moving it- the turntables fell out and the belt came loose- I have NO idea how the belt is supposed to go back on- I'm also having trouble with the Audio playing through a Stereo- the sound is very low- any info would be greatly appreciated!

    Cool! I finally figured out the Rubberband part- but was still having trouble with the audio- I kind of figured it was something like that- I wa actually dumb enough to think that maybe I could get the prong to fit around one of the Audio plugs-LOL- that didn't work!


    Thank you so much! You've been a MASSIVE help!

The reason why the audio is low, is that todays receivers do not have a phono input, and these types of inputs are differant then the ones of today. You will need whats called a phono preamp, and one should still be available from Radio shack. Or you can go here to find out more about them: http://www.phonopreamps.com/ To reseat the belt, take off the rubber mat on the turntabe disc. Install the belt around the inside ridge, there should be a couple of holes on the platter disc. Install the patter back onto the center spindle. Turn the platter around till you see the motor pully through one of the holes in the platter. Take the belt that is around the turntable platter, and pull it over to the motor pulley. Good Luck

I have a kenwood full automatic turntable KD-67F ac 120v 10w 60hz. I dont know how to get the thing to work what else do i need? speekers? or other things if u could let me know it would be a great help


First of all you will need an amplifier, because a turntable has no sound power and its impedance needs to be balanced by a phono input, often found on a receiver or an amplifier. Then you will connect the speakers to the receiver or to the amplifier. I believe that a good start would to buy an old cheap stereo receiver, which has phono inputs, where you connect your kenwood turntable. Hope this will help. Flavio/Brazil

My KD-291RC has power but my turntable wont turn. I touch the needle and I can hear its on and when I move the arm towards the record or set it on it it will not turn. Help?


Your turntable is belt-driven, it's likely that the belt just fell off. The belt lives under the turntable. On my turntable (a totally different model) the turntable lifts off.

Turntable starts playing record middle 1st song


The tonearm lift is no longer level as it should be and the arm is sliding along it under gravity as the arm lowers to the record. Has it received a knock?

Have a close look to see whether it has been tilted slightly. That would be enough to give the problem.

PUT ON BLET


The belt normally wraps around the bottom of the metal platter. Put the platter back on the turntable, and you'll see holes on opposite sides of the patter. Just pinch the belt out a little, and wrap around the motor shaft - should be a brass shaft assembly.

SX-1600 + KD-491F


Appreciate the additional information.

To recap what you need is a receiver that can accommodate:
4 - Pioneer S-DF1-K (15-100W, 8 ohms)
1 - Pioneer PD-F407 25 Disc CD Player
1 - Pioneer CT-300 dual tape deck
1 - Kenwood KD-491F turntable

Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):
i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;
ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;
iii. Sony STR DE695 AV receiver;
iv. Teac AG-790 200 Watt Stereo Receiver;
v. Denon AVR 888 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel.

Some of the above also includes feature(s) to hook up to your video system. Some may even require a fifth speaker (subwoofer).

Incidentally, you can also choose another brand/model even without a turntable/phono input. As initially posted, a turntable/phone to line level pre-amplifier is only required. Here are some examples:
a. XP200 Turntable Preamp - Nano Series;
b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;
c. Pro-Ject Phono Box Turntable Preamplifier;
d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box

Good luck with your project.
